Due to recent problems I’ve been forced to design and sculpt a replacement for the tomb spyder heads for my warrior conversions: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...onversion.html
When I decided to do this and savage my Mechanicus army idea it made me think…‘What are people’s overall views on Necron Warriors?’
Some people see them more as an obstacle in that they are the only troop choice and you need to take two squads of them before you can move on to the more sweeter units.
-- Meanwhile --
Others consider masses of warriors to be ‘cheesy’
This thread is to discuss what people think about Warriors and to give me a better idea about them?
I have nothing wrong with the warriors, other than the fact that they have absolutely no edge in combat, just that their initiative is just so low, they don't have much time to act before they're mowed down be a tac squad. Breaking off from combat doesn't help either...
High Necron Ld is great!
Gauss weaponry is always fun!
Generally good all around, but serve less than the average balanced tactical squad.

I think a 2,000-point army made up of one lord and the rest warriors is possible, but a little mean and frankly, rather boring. Who wants to build and paint 105 models that all look exactly the same? Also, it would be pretty hard to use them tactically. Only so much you can do. Your opponent will get irritated with you, but you can say that about any army. I wouldn't want to face an opponent with 100+ IG conscripts or ripper swarms, e.g.
But there's nothing wrong with the warriors. They have their place. When I first started, I had two 14-man squads, and I invariably left one behind, almost inside the deployment zone, while everything else moved up, for fear that I was gonna lose too many of them and trigger phase-out.
I've learned since then that it's unwise to "baby" them. They're tougher than I thought they were, and work well in concert with other units. I think when I hit 2,000 points I'm gonna try to have one 20-man squad and see how it performs. Of course, in addition to the 40 or so warriors I plan to have, I'll have a lord, monolith, C'Tan, wraiths, immortals, scarabs, and destroyers. Gives me more tactical options and makes for a better-looking crew, I think.
My opinion on warriors is as follows:
Best basic troop in the game!
You get what is essentially a space marine with a 50 percent chance of standing back up. If that weren't enough, you get a gun that that possibly KILL ANYTHING IN THE GAME for only 3 more points then an sm.
I never understood why people tend to look past these troops, taking the bare minimum just to take a few more destroyers. They’re just so good, and besides that the models are great.
Also watching your opponents face when a squad that was almost wiped out has all its casualties stand back up is priceless.
Slow... thats about it really. Give me Immortals anyday, If warriors get SaP in the future then thats great, but as they are they cant advance and shoot,i just find them relatively useless compared to Immortals, let alone all the other units we have on offer!
Warriors are a good core and add numbers, but they are damn slow, and too get they're rapid fire they risk getting charged after. I find them good at following around my Immortals and when the Immortals are charged I pull them out with a monolith and rapid fire them. A great underestimation unit. But I'll will take more immortals over warriors anyday.

Warriors are great, but they work best with a monolith, their full potential isn't reached until they are being flung around the battle.
Prey they don't take you alive
necron warriors are mean and nasty.
The alleged limitations on mobility are easily sidestepped and you can take wargear that mitigates their 'weaknesses'.
If they were any better it would be retarded.

With the new 5th Edition about to arrive I like to resurrect this thread and ask.."What do you think of Warriors in the new 5th edition of 40k do you believe they've gotten better or worse?"
